I must not get out much, as while driving to the Whole Foods in Tustin, I was amazed by all the new restaurants up & down Jamboree. There's a Vietnamese Phanh (??) by Park Place, Tofu Houses, a crepe place, I did see 1 review for Tokyo Table, and a bunch more - any input? Any ramen? Still searching for Saimen (I know, I know, Hawaiian) too...

    lots of good baked goods at 85 degrees. theres another bakery next to chae banh (sucks) called bon epi, which has a very good strawberry creme crossaint.. BBQ chicken is not bad (get the spicy bbq combo w/ fried rice, it's good!).
    tokyo table is overated, overpriced and sucks ass. decor is nice though.

    ajisen ramen is good. lots of variety for your ramen.
